    “Peace – and the veld with it’s coat of green,
    And the old, high hills with the vales between,
    Where mists of heat in their silver sheen,
    Shall dance as they danced before.”
    ….”Under God’s arch of gold and blue,
    Under the veil where the stars peep through,
    Year by year when the moon is new,
    Lay me and let me die.”
    …..”Thither in life how oft he turned his face,
    for him in death no fitter resting place.”

    Poetic environmental Geography – nothing knew but replaced largely by photography. Progress is a battle – Is a ‘good’ thing always a good ‘thing’? Just asking.
